Why Choose The University of Toledo College of Business and Innovation Post-Doctoral Bridge Program?

By design, completing a Post-Doctoral Bridge to Business Program will make non-business scholars more competitive when applying for faculty positions at AACSB-accredited business schools. AACSB's endorsement of these programs allows program graduates hired by an AACSB school to receive the same initial qualification status as do graduates of a business doctoral program.

AACSB's endorsement ensures each program will be rigorous to effectively prepare both experienced and new doctoral faculty from academic disciplines. The programs will serve as a bridge to facilitate the transition of scholars so they can efficiently pursue faculty positions in management education in business schools, which are increasing in recent years while the number of faculty positions in other disciplines is declining.

Furthermore, The University of Toledo's program faculty not only teaches, but mentors candidates so they have the optimum opportunity for having their research published and to make a successful career transition.
